Ultimate Work Clothes Thrift Score

Like I said last week  I am starting a new job in a fancy office and I have to wear dress clothes.  Sad I know. I don't own a lot of dress clothes to wear. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.
So I headed to Goodwill on Thursday for dollar day.

I scored 6 pairs of pants and 4 skirts.  They were $1.00 each.

1 dress, 1 sparkle jacket, 1 bolero (that is in the wash right now). and 10 shirts!
That's 23 items for $23.00! I got a few more things too but I need to chop them up and make them rock before I post those.
These clothes are all in great shape and most of them are name brand. If I were to shop at Ross for $23 I would have only got 1 pair of pants and maybe 1 shirt. I know there are 3 burgundy tops but I like the color. Also the sparkly jacket is my favorite and it is really right out of the 80's. It came with crappy shoulder pads and a HORRIBLE dress.
Tomorrow I'll be posting a tutorial I promise!

Welcome Back Thrift Store Score

What a month! Whew.... Let me tell you. I 1 week my house got robbed. They got my laptop with all my tutorial pictures and all of my other stuff. I then got the terrible stomach flu. After that I lost my job for being sick and my car broke!
So I am back anyways ready to blog. While I was missing I noticed I have had lots of new readers and even better... some posts were pinned!
Thanks guys! That is awesome.
So I'm back now. While I was missing I didn't even thrift! WHAT?! I know.
I went in a few times this week  though and I am planning a good trip tomorrow. I just got a new job working for a bank corporate office. I have to dress nice all the time. I need some work clothes!
I found another awesome vintage pitcher for $1.99 and those shoes were $1.00. I won't wear them but I'm going to glitter them!
Tomorrow I'm going to get some work clothes though. Wish me luck!
I will have a new tutorial up soon too!
